From the following post by Cabrilo at nVnews it looks like Linuxant has produced an rpm that solves the nvdia driver problem in fedora core 2:

"If you are as lazy as me and you just LOVE rpm's, here is a solution to all of your problems:

http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader/wlan/full/downloads-fc2-kernel-i686.php

"They are identical to the Fedora kernels, except for the removal of problematic CONFIG_4KSTACKS, nostack and 4G/4G patches."

I am using one right now. glxgears is giving nice results!"

SO, we can use this rpm and get nvidia going, right? :confused:

Well I haven't got it working on my laptop yet. ;)

Those RPMs have been around for a while I'm afraid. It really isn't anything new, as there's a link to them on the FedoraFAQ (http://www.fedorafaq.org).

I also used the linuxant kernal as well ...http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader/wlan/full/archive/fc2/kernel-2.6.6-1.427.8kstacks.i686.rpm.zip?PHPSESSID=e428a5099d96 23282553b5cc69a0f93c
then ran the Nvidia script ...all works well...

BTW...why is it I can't seem to find the "resolved" button when I feel my question has been answered?

It's been missing in action for a couple of months.
